“Great view and service - food a hit too!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

Ate at the “casual” side -- to the right of the pier. You seat yourself, so if you want a table with a great view, you kind of need to hover and be aware of who is finishing up their meal.

We waited about 15 minutes and got a great table. We were able to watch the surfers and get some sun.

Bloody Mary’s were very good. Next time I’ll ask for a bit more horseradish. Ordered the calamari for appetizer. Just OK - probably wouldn’t order again. Three of us had the grilled tuna sandwich served on a ciabatta roll. Our server thankfully recommended it prepared the way she orders it - which is seared and blackened. Otherwise the chefs cook it through. This sandwich couldn’t have been more delicous. Also had the fish and chips. Good - but the tuna was the star meal. Would go again. Great service - great view - yummy food.

“Fresh and Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

Found this convenient place to have a snack after having rolled into this quiet little town. Ordered the tuna poke, a delicious chopped concoction with ahi, macadamia and guac. We also had some oysters that were also very fresh. Great views of the coastline, plenty of patio heaters next to tables that sit over the water, and good service.

“Great view and fresh oysters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

It's sitting on the San Clemente Pier and it has a great view of the ocean.
Good service and great food. Do try the oysters on the half shell, they are really fresh and delicious.
